Court Affirms Nguru As Yobe State PDP Chairman
A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by Alhaji Gana Lawan and 26 others, challenging the leadership of Alhaji Inuwa Nguru as Yobe State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP Chairman.
Delivering judgement on Suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/1134/2017, the presiding judge, Justice Binta Murtala Nyako of the Federal High Court in Abuja yesterday dismissed the suit and all the reliefs sought by the plaintiffs and affirmed the Alh. Sani Inuwa Nguru-led executive committee as authentic PDP EXCO in Yobe state.
It may be recall that late last year Alh Lawan Karasuwa filed a similar suit at Yobe state high Court challenging the leadership of Sani Inuwa Nguru but the court struck out the case in favour of Nguru and awarded a penalty of 50,000 against the plaintiff.
Alh Sani Inuwa Nguru leadership of the PDP is said to be loyal to Adamu maina waziri – a member of PDP board of trustees while Alhaji Gana Lawan faction is allegedly backed by a serving Senator from Yobe State who has been funding the legal cost.
Reacting to the judgement, a PDP chieftain and member representing Nangere/Potiskum Federal Constituency, Hon. Sabo Garba commended the judgement, describing it as a victory for the Party and democracy.
He urged parties involved to bury their differences and forge a common front for the unity, cohesion and success of the party at all levels.
